Can anyone tell me if the grip safeties on these 2 1911's are Clark (http://www.clarkcustomguns.com/clk1911pts.htm) grip safeties, sold at that website?

The grip safeties look very similar to King's #203. I do believe they are no longer available. Smith & Alexander makes an exceptional grip safety without palm-swell if that's what you are looking for: http://www.smithandalexander.com/gripsafety.html

Well apart from the lack of a palmswell on the safety, what I'm really looking for is that particular style of beavertail safety. The S&A safeties are nice, but they don't have "retro" look I'm going for. And before anyone says, I'm not looking for a duck tail grip safety either :-P

Actually, I found out what it is. It's a Clark combat grip safety, part 180-181. Another very similar style is the Wilson #66. Anyone know where I can get my grubby mitts on either of those?

Brownells? Midway? Wilson?
